Comin' down the home stretch
Of course, none of that's worth a damn if there's nobody there to see it. So we're pounding the pavement in the next week. Our big promo push started last night, when Mac, his lovely wife/our hair & make-up genius Brenda, and myself hit the streets to hand out postcards--with Mac in his full Elvis gear. The tourists loved him-- I only got a little bit of video (below), but he snapped tons of pictures and we unloaded a ton of postcards.
But, again--if nobody comes, the show is no damned fun. So don't forget: it's at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre, located in New York’s West Village, 61 Christopher Street at 7th Avenue. We have two performances: Friday, August 13th at 9:30pm (reserve tickets here), and Saturday, August 14th at 10pm (reserve tickets here). Tickets are just $10; there is a two-drink minimum. You don't have to pay in advance, you just have to let them know you're coming, so enough of their wonderful wait staff will be there to attend to your every beverage need.
Four more rehearsals to go-- three at my apartment, and then our tech rehearsal on Thursday. In the meantime, there will be more promoting; Mac (and Mike and some other fine folks) will be in the Duplex neighborhood, saying hello and handing out postcards and introducing ourselves to the neighbors. So, y'know, if you live there, come out and say hello to Elvis.
See you next week!
